Emergency Preparation - An Overview 

2.0 Fox Island Ready - Emergency Preparation

Home > Emergency Preparation > An Overview

Our MOST VALUABLE work is done BEFORE the emergency happens!  As you will read often in FEIP literature: “The foundation of The Plan is individual family preparedness.”  

And, we have come to learn that neighborhood planning and preparedness (Block Coordination) is critical to reacting to, and extending survival under, severe conditions.  This section will provide you access to all the information available ‘out there’ that you can consider for preparing to learn of, react to, and survive ‘The Big One’ - be it bridge out, wild fire, power out in freezing conditions, or other such catastrophes. 


There are NO water, food supplies or medical services on Fox Island. Without the bridge, we are on our own. Depending on the disaster it could be days or weeks before help arrives. This site is here to help YOU and YOUR FAMILY get the knowledge and skills to survive.

Emergency Preparedness Topics in this section:

  • 2.1.0 Individual Responsibility
    • 2.1.1 Sign up for Pierce County Alert to receive advisory information on an emergency that could impact you.  That will have you receiving notification (wherever you and your family members are) of an incident that may affect you.
    • 2.1.2 Refer to your Fox Island Family Emergency Manual for the first steps in preparing.  No Manual? Click on this link (link to Manual contents coming soon...) to go to the Manual contents which you can read and/or download.
    • 2.1.3 In the Family Emergency Manual, go to Section 2 for the basic steps for individual/family preparation.  That Manual will, in the end, guide you back to this FI-Ready.org website for access to more details and resources.
